GiffordThe prestigious Gifford Lectures have been delivered annually since 1888 by a succession of distinguished international scholars.

The Gifford Lectureships (held at the Universities of Edinburgh, Glasgow, Aberdeen and St. Andrews) were established under the will of Lord Adam Gifford (1820-1887), a former student of the University of Edinburgh and Senator of the College of Justice.

Established to ‘promote and diffuse the study of Natural Theology in the widest sense of the term – in other words, the knowledge of God,’ the Lectureships have enabled a most notable field of scholars to contribute to the advancement of theological thought.

Dr Alexander Forsyth, Hope Trust Post-doctoral Research Fellow at New College, University of Edinburgh, will share his reflections on themes arising from Professor Jeremy Waldron’s 2015 Gifford Lecture Series, and will invite your comments and contributions.

Further information on the Lecture Series and how you can contribute to discussions will be posted soon.
